    Course description
    The programme, taught jointly by the School of Computer Science and Manchester Business School, will equip you with the mixture of technical and contextual skills required to design and deploy effective software systems in commercial or public organisations.

    Modern organisations are heavily dependent on computer systems, which can range from applications such as financial management packages to sophisticated decision support and knowledge management tools. As the `knowledge economy' becomes ever more important, the need for software to manage the information that an organisation depends on is also becoming more important.  The programme therefore develops the much sought abilities to develop software systems using an understanding of the consequences of introducing or changing IT systems as part of a wider collection of activities within an organisation.
